Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Let's lobby Google for a JG 70th B-day doodle


Last night I sent an e-mail to the Google Doodle team, suggesting that 08/01/2012 would be a very nice date for a Jerry Garcia Doodle. I have no clue how their process works, but maybe the more people they hear from the more likely they are to do it. They did a cool one for Freddy Mercury's 65th.

Contact info/e-mail is below. I'm also going to try to figure out how to get this message to the peeps at dead. net. If anyone here has an in with any of those people, or visits a lot of other dead sites, please feel free to propagate this idea however you please.


How can Google users/the public submit ideas for doodles?
"The doodle team is always excited to hear ideas from users - they can email proposals@google.com with ideas for the next Google doodle. The team receives hundreds of requests every day so we unfortunately can't respond to everyone. But rest assured that we're reading them :)"

Definitely overdue!

After all, the band did do Wang Dang Doodle. So you'd think they'd return the favor :-)

What should it play? Usually those things, if it's a musician, link to YouTube videos, right? Ringo hasn't been around these parts lately, but she's the queen of the Jerry Links; I bet she'd have some good candidates to propose.

Don't ask me why - because I do not know - but when I picture it (however it turns out), I'm hearing the Eyes of the World from One From The Vault

That's actually weirdly appropriate when you think of the nature of Google.

nah,

Steve is a teddy bear, even though the Dead did have a reputation for only hiring people who were unemployable anywhere else.

With all the references on the scene over the years of "a religious experience" one might consider Steve to be a parishioner, yes?

Even if we don't get a Jerry doodle on Google, you get a Gold Dark Star for the post with the most words with double letters in the subject line.

maybe the Google doodle lobby can have an Oodles of Noodles
poodle as a sponser.
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...

I am all for it. The First G is Jerrys head/face.
The two 'oo' after can be tied together to make two 1/8
notes. The 2nd 'g' can be a bong, and and the 'l' can
be a line of coke (or a joint). And the 'e' has got to be a hit of dose, or ecstacy. IMO

haters wanna hate, lovers wanna love...

and.... GRATEFUL DEAD RULES!!!!!! (.00005 gold darkstar?)

Dude craven -

Part of me reluctantly wants to know how your soundboard is wired.

The other part is deathly afraid to find out.......

This is a terrific idea, I'll research this!!
A first thought if it goes to a youtube clip:

Jerry here is looking youthful, happy, and with-it, relatively speaking. And everybody and their grandma likes Ripple.

Doodles are what they call the Google logo when it commemorates special occasions.

Here's a link to the way cool one they did for Les Paul's birthday last year. Sorry I do not know how to put a picture in a post.

The Freddie Mercury one included animation:
